    Trading Marmol could fill a couple of Cubs holes
    Reports say the Tigers are looking to trade for a closer. Hang loose, Carlos Marmol. I mean, didn’t the Cubs sign Kyuji Fujikawa precisely because they intended-slash-hoped-slash-tried to trade Marmol? In fact, the Cubs cut a deal with the...
